Take Classes Online
When 2U, Inc., set out to create a groundbreaking online experience that could compete with brick-and-mortar alternatives, the primary focus was placed on the development of its innovative online learning platform. 2U online classes feature state-of-the-art video technology that facilitates live, face-to-face classroom exchanges. In the 2U virtual classroom, professors can present dynamic course materials and students can participate in discussions just as they would in an on-campus classroom.
In 2U online classes, all students appear on-screen at the same time. This innovative learning platform can also be used to break students into smaller project groups, to form after-class study groups, and for face-to-face exchanges during online faculty office hours.
Coursework for 2U online classes is developed with the same university faculty who actually teach the courses—and can be accessed 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection. Familiar social networking tools are also used to help students stay connected outside of the classroom and to build a professional network that can stretch across the country and around the world.
2U online classes are part of an educational experience created by technology and advanced by the independent spirit of students who choose to learn and advance on their own terms and in their own time.
